Animalistic woods, eroticism and mystery. The fragrance opens on an intriguing contrast between the fresh notes of Nepalese pepper, also known as Timur pepper, and the warm notes of saffron. It then reveals a sophisticated accord of Tonkin musk and cashmeran. Next it creates a striking sensation, an erotic impression of bodies seeking out and finding one another before melding beautifully together in a spellbinding symbiosis. Pervaded by oud and sandalwood, a woody base enhances this vibrant note. PS: Serge de Oliveira is renowned for his gift for working animalistic notes.

What does Nepalese pepper smell like?

Nepalese pepper is also known as Timut pepper. This new false pepper is all the rage in cooking and belongs to the same family as Sichuan pepper. It has an extraordinary fragrance of citrus fruits and grapefruit. You can also detect a lemony floral hint with a base of exotic fruits. This spice can be found all across Nepal, primarily in the Terai region of wetlands in the south of the country, where it is eaten on a daily basis. The Terai is the birthplace of the Buddha. Timur pepper is harvested over an average period of three weeks. The thorns on the Timur bush make the task long and difficult. Its berries are dried in the sun and the aromatic black seed emerges from its casing.

What is the story behind Tonkin musk?

The favorite fragrance of Empress Josephine and a legendary perfume ingredient, Tonkin musk has an extremely powerful scent that is both woody and animalistic. Produced by the glands of the musk deer, Tonkin musk was considered to be an aphrodisiac and was drunk with a straw. Oh dear! Today it is illegal to obtain musk from the deer, but it is now possible to recreate its scent. Ambrette, for example, is a flower with a musky smell.

What is oud?

Oud, oodh, agarwood, aloeswood, calambac, jinko or gaharu – there are so many names for this one ingredient! It is a very fragrant dark resin produced by a genus of trees called Aquilaria when they are infected with the Phialophra mold. Once the tree has produced an abundance of the black resin, it is cut into chips and then soaked in water to prepare it for extraction. If it isn’t soaked for long enough, the oil will tend to stay inside. However if it is soaked for too long, it can spoil the scent. It is therefore a matter of precision timing! Finally, the wood obtained must be distilled for many hours using distillation apparatus to obtain the essential oil. That is why it is one of the most expensive ingredients in perfumery and it is said that the wood is worth more than its weight in gold. This precious wood reveals woody, animalistic, sometimes even very animalistic notes. It is occasionally said that it has caprine notes (i.e. reminiscent of goats). It is truly an olfactory treasure for fragrance compositions that combine sensuality and power.

Mix & Match:

Become your very own perfumer by mixing two fragrances together. Strike the right balance for a result that is just as unique as you are. 101 lends this intense oud soft and floral facets with a hint of rose. When paired with 302, 903 becomes even muskier and more sensual.


How to use it:

Spritz on pulse points like wrists, neck, behind ears, and inner elbows to make your fragrance last longer.

30 ml (1 fl.oz.)
100 ml (3,4 fl.oz.)

 Rumor has it that this bar leads to magnetic but fleeting encounters. Or a getaway to the wilds of the Brazilian coast that ends in a game of hide-and-seek in the dunes.

Problème de livraison

Rien à dire sur le parfum, le coffret bien agencé, petits échantillons appréciés. Hélas j'ai payé un supplément pour être certaine que la livraison arrive dans les 13h, c'était pour un anniversaire. Le colis est arrivé 2 jours plus tard. Décevant...

parfait

le 903 est un parfum qui parait puissant mais qui s'adoucit très rapidement. Elegant, il est vraiment mixe, je l'ai mixé avec le 001 mais je le préfère en solo.

Bon Parfumeur 903

💙 This beautiful woody perfume can be called quite unique and the scent is very good. A lot of attention has gone into the creation and composition of the beautiful materials.
The perfumer Nathalie Koonus has created something very beautiful.
All notes are in balance with each other, the sweet Nepal berrys, the warm sultry saffron and especially the wood notes with the main actor being the oud with the sandalwood and the tonka. It's a feel good smell.
The composition is a beautiful elegant western Woody - Oud perfume that smells amazingly good and is very pleasant.
I was quite amazed in a positive way when I first tested this perfume, I wanted it right away.
You could layer the 903 with the 104 for a nice floral green scent or with the 303 to create a nice oriental woody scent.
The perfumes of Bon Parfumeur are very nice to layer with every perfume from their collection to create a new scent that will receive a lot of attention.

Bon parfumeur makes beautiful scents that are very affordable.
Which perfumes from Bon Parfumeur do you have in your collection and have you layered them with others? Have you created a new perfume with the layering?

Despite his atypical career path, Serge has never lost sight of his passion for fragrances. Thanks to the trust placed in him by the perfumers Richard Ibanez and Michel Almairac, he was able to practice the profession at the house of Robertet. His indispensable ingredients are vetiver, patchouli and tuberose. Everyday life, family, social interaction, travel, an exhibition… he has so many sources of inspiration! His fondest fragrance memory? The tuberose harvest in Grasse – heaven on Earth! He thinks that a Bon Parfumeur is “someone who is passionate and manages to lend a bit of their personality and an ‘original’ signature to every fragrance they create.” His own signature is his special style: a mix of mystery, originality and innovation.
